Life 3.0

After the very well written Our Mathematical Universe, the great Max Tegmark has released another very good book: Life 3.0. This book has helped me reviewing the history of AI and understand much better its benefits and mostly its risks. Tegmark also presents in here The Future of Life Institute of which I’ve become a recurrent donner. There’s a lot of talk about AI systemic risks and the Institute work helps put them in perspective and compare them with some other older risks. Some are scarringly high as Nuclear and Biological war and of course climate change.
